Re: Grade The Draft

My initial thought is B+

I like this draft better than the last few drafts.

I have no complaints other than us not having a second round pick.

Had me at whiskey... Especially as there were no cat choices.

Re: Grade The Draft

Way too early to say. Vacccaro could be a bust (we don't have a good track record drafting DBs in the 1st round)

Re: Grade The Draft

Drafts take two years to develop. But if the past is relevant, this ckads will have one decent and one marginal player. Too bad we couldnt get a few more udfa's.

I don't think we're done with the UDFAs yet.

Re: Grade The Draft

For only 5 picks, and no second rounder, we killed it.

Our last pick was the weakest, but its a low risk high reward type of project. I can live with that.

I love every other pick. I'd give us an A-minus, maybe a B-Plus because of the small school project at the end.

I think most of them won't contribute until 2014, but the draft is for the long run, not immediate. Jenkins and Vicarro should contribute at once, but the LT, WR and DE are probably gonna wait until 2014.
